KEY BENEFITS

Explore the high-level protective benefits of this technology application.

GOR_TOF_IC_Arc_rated

GORE® PYRAD® fabric technology blocks convective heat flow during arc exposure and stops flame propagation by forming a carbonaceous char with the textile.

When wet or dry, these garments are up to 20% lighter than other garments with category 3 arc protection, allowing the wearers to work outside for extended periods during heavy rain.

As breathability is key for an improved comfort and leads to an increased wearer acceptance, GORE-TEX PYRAD® fabrics are highly breathable and avoid build up of moisture from inside.

Arc rated GORE-TEX PYRAD® garments are durably waterproof and keep the wearer dry and comfortable when working long hours outdoors in heavy rain.

DURABLE RAIN PROTECTION FOR OUTDOOR ELECTRICAL WORKERS

Arc rated GORE-TEX PYRAD® garments are durably waterproof and reliably protect electrical workers against the thermal hazards of an electric arc. They stay lightweight and comfortable even when wet.

Up to 20% lighter when wet or dry than other products of their protective class, arc rated GORE-TEX PYRAD® garments feel less bulky to wear leading to more wearer acceptance.

The garments provide maximum comfort with the highest protection level, so electrical workers remain safe – no matter the challenge, and no matter the weather.

 

Ideal for
The technology has been developed with real-work situations in mind, so that hard-working professionals in challenging environments can stay protected, and simply focus on their important work.
